Paul Nicholls sends over his star staying chaser of the last few seasons in the shape of Clan Des Obeaux. A two times winner of the King George, he had to settle for a well beaten 2nd place in last year’s renewal.
He’s also no stranger to raids on this course. Coming over to Ireland for this race last year saw Clan Des Obeaux get the better of Al Boum Photo.
Despite this season not initially going to plan he bounced right back to form last time out when winning the Betway Bowl at Aintree, fending off Conflated. Looks to have a live chance in defending his crown.
